Subject:        SNL Summer Festivals List from Winter Issue

Below is the Summer Festivals list I submitted to *The Shakespeare
Newsletter*.  The editors decided to publish the list earlier than in
previous years and to include an update in the spring issue.

If you work with a festival that is not included, please contact me for
the format for an entry, and I'll include it in the next issue.
